The fam was going many different directions this weekend. I checked in with the crew this morning and here’s the low down…
Steve and Nicole celebrated their six-year anniversary on Saturday. Congrats, y’all! Nicole also had a doctor’s appointment this weekend, which found baby Whitacre to have a super strong heartbeat. Yeah!
Kristin is a nut! Yes, she is the big football fan in our family and last night the Redskins were set to play the Cowboys at 8 p.m. Well, Kristin’s power mysteriously went out at 6:30. Within minutes that girl was on the phone with PEPCO (our local power company). My power was out too, but calling the company didn’t even cross my mind. I mean, these people are all over this stuff! But one call was not enough for Kristin. After being assured that someone was on the way, she called again (yes, again) to make sure that he had arrived. We all told her that she was crazy. (Sorry, Kristin, I just couldn’t resist!) Her precious power was restored just in time for the big game. (Which by the way, you really have to be on top of the remote these days. The immodesty of the cheerleaders was grieving to say the least.)
It’s a big day for my nephews. Brian, Steve, and the kids are making the trek to Strasburg, PA as we speak to see a real Thomas the Tank Engine. They get to take a ride on the big blue train and meet Sir Topham Hatt. Can it get any better?
I had a super weekend hanging out with Caly and Chad. (Chad has been staying with us while my parents were away.) Last night was the kick-off meeting for our children’s ministry at church, led by my amazing husband. Great job, Mikey! After the meeting it was Redskins vs. Cowboys (and we won’t talk about that pathetic game) with some pizza and cheese sticks on the side. Yummy!
Before I sign off, I have a couple of links for ya. One funny and one serious. Josh Harris posted a humorous exchange between him and my dad on his blog. And Nicole has an article for daughters on “What Does It Mean to Obey?” at Crosswalk.com.
Enjoy your Monday…
